BARR posted by Walt Dean on Thursday, April 20, 2000

Robert Barr b.20 Jan 1785 would have been born in New Castle county,Delaware since his father's, John Barr, Pension Papers state that he moved to Pennsylvania in 1787. Robert died 19 Nov 1824. Here is some info I copied at Family History Library in Salt Lake City a year or two ago. Will stop there again for a week of research in May on way to Cameron county in June. In the book History of Centre and Clinton Co., PA. 1883 by John Blair Linn 974.85H2L on page 648, in the Noyes Township chapter of Clinton County section, there is a narrative; I was up on the Sinnemahoning one time in company with Robert Barr. One Jerry Gaines who lived there had misused a sister of Barr's; he met Gaines; an altercation took place, and resulted in Barr shooting Gaines in the leg. By advice of Barr's friends he gave himself up, was taken to jail, and when the day of the trial came Barr had hosts of friends; he was cleared without any trouble and came home rejoicing. The 1991 book, History of Cameron County Pennsylvania on page 7 in the Historical Chronological Report T4; 1813 - 1817 mentions Jerry Gaines (a fugitive slave from Virginia). On page 16 in the section Cameron County Names and Places T13;Upper, Middle, and Lower Jerry Run was named for Jerry Gaines, an escaped slave who settled at Grove

LOGUE posted by Clarence Cummins on Monday, April 24, 2000

I am seeking information about the families of Adam Logue (1751 - 1836), George Logue (1789 - 1859) and Thomas Logue (1829 - 1885). Adam Logue (1751 - 1836) is my 3rd great-grandfather. George Logue (1789 - 1859) is my 2nd great-grandfather, and Thomas Logue (1829 - 1885) is my Great grandfather. Adam (1751 - 1799) apparently had four sons, Adam (1787 - 1875), George (1789 - 1859), Archibald (1792 or 1793 -?) and Thomas (1794 - ?, some or all who lived in Cameron County. From census info it appears Thomas must have died before 1850. Did Adam have more than one wife? One source lists Mary and a Nancy Sterrett. Is this possible? The 1850 Census for Grove TWP, Cameron CO, PA lists George Logue (misspelled as Logen), age 61, farmer, born in PA in 1789. His wife, Lamira, age49, born in MA in 1801. Son Samuel, age 24, farmer, born in MA in 1826. Son Thomas, age 21, farmer, born in MA in 1829. Daughter Samantha (could this be Sibyl Amanda, born 1833), age 17, born in MA in 1833. (1st question: Were the children born in MA or PA? PA is more likely. 2nd question: When did Geoge, Lamira and their children leave PA? They apparently went to WI and some of their descendants went to MN and ND.) One source, the accuracy of which I have not verified, states that George Logue, born 14 June 1789, Adams Co, PA, died 18 July 1959, Muscoda, WI. His wife as Lamira Francis Dewey, born Oct 6, 1801, Westfield, MA, died March 18, 1880, Muscoda, WI. They were married April 22, 1818 in Carlisle, PA. Apparently George and Lamira had 12 children, all born in Clinton (i.e., Cameron) County. Only six children lived to be adults. Did four of their sons serve in the Civil War? If anyone knows I would be pleased to hear from you.


DININNY, HOUT posted by Renee Fimbel on Thursday, April 27, 2000

Searching for any details regarding Hout family in Emporium, Cameron County. My great-grandfather was John Augustine Hout, born 1868. His parents were John Joseph Hout (born 6/10/1843, died 10/22/1890), and Minnie Bissig, and I believe John Joseph migrated here from Bavaria with his parents, Charles and Mary Haupt..


BLOOM, GORTNER, KLEES posted by Robert Bloom on Saturday, April 29, 2000

The Klees Families buried in Newton Cemetery in Emporium Pa are related to my grandmother Sarah Jane Klees Bloom who for a time resided in Emporium. They originally came from Muncy & Williamsport in Lycomung Co. Pa. My question is, if any one knows, the relationship of J. Raymond Klees. Perma M.(J. Raymond's wife), Marie E.Klees, James Klees and H. Gaskill Klees to the rest of the Klees family. Henry Rhoades Klees is my grandmother's brother. His wife was Sarah Elizabeth Gortner and his son was Philip G. Klees. We have pictures of Henry and a picture postcard of Philip G. in uniform. On the reverse side is writen "Philip G. Klees Co. H 112 Regement U.S. Infantry Camp Hancock Augusta, Ga." J. Raymond is a contemporary of Henry R. but I am quite sure he is not a brother. In 1870 he would have been 12 years old and in the 1870 Census (Page 251A lines 10-14)of Muncy Township, Lycoming Co., Pa. he is not listed with Henry or Henry,s siblings still living with their parents Jacob Klees and Margaret Hall Klees and their grand mother Mary Marsh Hall..
